“… unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven” —Matthew 5:20

It is true that actions speak louder than words but hour about our thoughts? aspirations? motives? Are they as pure as our actions?
That is what I learned today. As Christians, it is not enough that we do good works but just like what I’ve learned - it is always the relationship, the fact that Jesus is in me that matters. By letting Him take over my life, everything I do will be His and it will not only change my actions but my motives as well. “Break my heart for what breaks Yours”… remember that line of the song? It speaks exactly what today’s devotion is about. Our aspirations change, the way we think, our motives. We see what Jesus sees. We see a world in need of His light. We start to become aware that our actions will do more wonders if our heart is fully one with what we do.
Nothing is impossible with Christ Jesus and even for the heart of stone… He can easily melt it if we let Him.
